Do you need some unique and authentic gifts? Would you like to add a few more pieces to your Christmas wonderland? Are you a member of the German-Texan Heritage Society?

If you answered YES to all three questions, we got you covered.

This year’s Christmas Market will be member-only

Saturday, November 28th, from 10am to 4pm and

Wednesday, December 2nd, from 11am to 7pm

Saturday, December 5th, from 10am to 4pm
If you are looking for truly German Christmas decorations, you will find them here. Ours are imported from the Erzgebirge, an East-German region that is internationally known for its various Advent and Christmas customs: pyramids, schwibbogen, smokers, candles, hand blown and hand-carved ornaments will be on display and sale as well as advent calendars and gingerbread from Nuremberg’s Lebkuchen Schmidt.
We will have Christmas Stollen made by the New World Bakery and German cookies from Silke’s German Gourmet Cookies.
Not a member yet? – Become a member NOW. We are super affordable (http://germantexans.org/membership/) and take advantage of the 2020 Christmas Market.
Unfortunately, we won’t be able to hold our normal German Texan festival and magical atmosphere (food, drink, and music) with proper social spacing in and around the German Free School as in past years. We hope to be able to bring back the public German Christmas Market festival in 2021.

 

Need to know where to park your car? Please carpool if you can. If you don’t have any luck on the surrounding streets, try the hotels: Hyatt House, Holiday Inn Express.

No need to volunteer this year.

To make this experience as enjoyable as it can possibly be under the current circumstances, please make sure to come with your mask, keep your social distance from all people present, sanitize regularly if you touch our items and most of all, DO NOT come if you are sick, are showing symptoms of becoming sick or have been in contact with anyone who is/has been sick within the last two weeks.

Vielen Dank und bis bald!
